states? well, if you're ali abdullah of yemen, first you come to the u.s. to recover from old bombing injuries and then back home in yemen, you announce the opening of a museum all about yourself. yes, come one, come all to sunny sana to see priceless museum pieces as large portraits, weapons given while in office and the suit he was wearing during the aforementioned bombing and shrapnel that was recovered from his body. wow. the curator says the museum is almost ready to open, as soon as they get the lights and air conditioning sorted out. i suppose this is progress of a kind, most dictators would probably keep all the stuff for themselves. the correct answer to our gps challenge question was "d" king umborto ii was the last king of italy and his reign was rather brief. ended in june of '46 after the republic was formed. thanks to all of you for being part of our program this week. i will see you next week. stay tuned for "reliable sources." >>> the latest clash between president obama and the press corps comes not only budget cuts or immigration or guns but over golf. an outing with

national news get overshadowed? joining us now in washington is jane hall school of communications. frank sesno and a former cnn washington bureau chief and paul farh ireporter for "the washington post." should the cable networks gone wall-to-wall with the christopher dorner drama as the president was getting ready for the state of the union. >> they didn't have a choice. >> they didn't have a choice? >> executives make choices. >> what they didn't do, they didn't interrupt the speech itself. they didn't split screen the speech itself. so, the speech itself stood there. now, would i have liked to have seen more about the president and what was going into the state of the union? yes. is there a clash here? fundamentally right the dorner story is a local story, mostly. but it was getting national attention. so, it was both. the presidential story was a global story. this is, this is o.j. on steroids. i mean, wve been here before. >> tleferance, of course, made to bill clinton's 1997 state of the union which was split screen. okay, local story jane hall, national attention. why is that? >> w

on some of these softer media venues. joining us now bill plante and david zurawik television critic for "baltimore sun" and julie mason and former white house correspondent for politico. bill plante, you have been patrolling that building since ronald reagan. does the press look self-involved and whiny, as i said earlier complaining about this tiger incident? >> we have gotten used to being a whiny lap dogs. i have gotten used to it. this is about access to the president. and access to the president has been cut and pushed and curtailed over every administration i've covered. here's the nub of it, howie, this administration has the tools to reach people on their own. they don't need us as much. and to the extent that they're able to do that, they're undercutting the first amendment, which guarantees a free press through many voices. if they put out their own material, it's state-run media. >> yes. >> bill makes an interesting point. and part of the reason that the white house press corps, no picture was put out. we never saw the two of them together. maybe obama administration wante

not to actually talk about this and only use quotes sparingly from him. and i happen to think that for "the new york times" is a wise decision. you want to see it on facebook, go look for it. >> let me mention that dorner also sent a package to cnn's anderson cooper which contained a dvd having to do with his being kicked off the lapd and also a bullet-ridden souvenir coin. take a look at cooper's reaction. >> what i find so interesting and puzzling is that, i mean, big parts of this manifesto don't sound like they come from an insane person or someone capable of doing these killings. he seems aware of reality, the consequences of his actions. >> i've been getting a lot of heat on twitter saying this guy dorner likes all these liberals on tv, the media is covering this up, it's somehow tying the fact of these media personalities to this murder's alleged rampage saying we blame conservatives. it would be different if he said he liked rush limbaugh or sarah palin. i don't know what to make of that. >> i thought the more interesting part of his manifesto was his analysis of the lapd. there is a lo
